This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you.

RESULTS OF PRIMARY TRIANGULATION. 



By HSNBY Oakivbtt. 



INTRODUCTION. 



The triangalation of the U. S. Geological Survey is exeoated solely 
for the primary control of topographic work upon scales not exceeding 
1: 62500. The extreme of accuracy has therefore not been sought, but 
only snch a degree of accuracy as to insure that the maximum accumu- 
lated error be imperceptible ux)on the maps. 

Wherever work has been done by other organizations, which is of 
sufficient accuracy for the control of the maps of this organization, such 
work has been utilized both immediately for the location of topographic 
work and also for the extension of triangulation therefrom by this 
organization. The work of the U. 8. Coast and Geodetic Survey has 
been lar|^ely used in this manner, especially in the eastern part of the 
country* The maps in New England, New York, New Jersey, and 
Pennsylvania rest in large part directly upon the points determined by 
this organization, while in the Appalachian region, triangulation haa 
been extended by this organization from points determined by the 
U. 8. Ck>ast and Geodetic Survey. The work of the TT. S.Lake Survey 
and also that of the New York State survey has been extensively 
utilized in a similar manner, as is fully set forth in the descriptions 
accompanying the different groups of results. In the interior of the 
country and in the Far West, work has been done ab initio by this 
Survey. Astronomical determinations of x>ositions have been made, 
base lines have been measured and expansions effected by it. 

The results have been arranged in chapters by geographical groups, 
the arrangement being as natural as possible, and as an introduction 
to each chapter there is given a description of the work, outlining the 
methods employed' and instruments used, and stating by whom the 
work was done. 

The groups into which the work is arranged are as follows: 

KEWBM^OLAND: 

The triangulation of the U. S. Coast and Geodetic Survey covers the 

entire coast of Maine and extends for inland. It covers most of New 

Hampshire and much of Vermont, while practically the entire areas of 

the remaining States of this group are covered by its primary stations.

2 RESULTS OF PRIMARY TRIANGULATION. [buul. : 

In Massachasetts the iiameroas stations pf the Borden survey ha 
been adjusted by the U. S. Coast and Geodetic Survey to agreeme 
with its own positions, and have thus become available for use. Oi 
side of Massachusetts the stations of the U. S. Ck)ast and Geodetic Si 
vey are, as a rule, far apart, and much work of a supplementary charact 
has been found necessary, in order to obtain' enough points for instit 
ting plane-table triangulatiou. This work of supplementing the t 
angulation of the U. S. Coast and Geodetic Survey has been execut 
by Messrs. S. S. Gannett and R. U. Goode. 

NEW YORK, XEW JERSEY, AND PENNSYLVANIA: 

In New York a large amount of triangulatiou has been executed 1 
the U. 8. Coast and Geodetic Survey. Its work extended from Nc 
York Harbor up the 'Hudson and through Lake Champlain and up tl 
Mohawk Valley to a connection with the TJ. 8. Lake Survey ue\ 
Oswego. Triangulatiou has been extended along the shores of Lak< 
Erie and Ontario by the U. S. Lake Survey. The New York Stai 
survey, under Mr. J. T. Gardiner, starting from points near the Hudao 
determined by the U. S. Coast and Geodetic Survey, has been extendi 
westward to the foot of Lake Erie and southward across the middle < 
the State to the Pennsylvania line. 

The entire area of New Jersey has been closely covered by triangul 
tion by the U. S. Coast and Geodetic Survey, and the Ne^w Jersc 
Geological Survey. 

The work of the U. S. Coast and Geodetic Survey extends over 
large part of eastern Pennsylvania. 

In New York and Pennsylvania it has been found necessary to ex( 
cute much supplementary triangulatiou, both for the purpose of su] 
plying more points in areas already covered by triangulatiou and in th 
extension of triangulatiou into new areas. In all this work, as in Ne^ 
England, the work of other organizations, above specified, has fui 
nished the base lines. The work in these States has been executed b 
Mr. S. S. Gannett. 

SOUTHERN APPALACHIAN REGION: 

The U. S. Coast and Geodetic Survey has carried a belt of large fig 
nres from the head of Chesapeake Bay south westward to central Ah 
bama, along the east front of the Appalachian Mountain system. Th 
lines of this belt have served as a series of base lines for the extensioi 
of triangulatiou by the U. S. Geological Survey westward and north 
ward over the mountain region. This work has been going forward fo 
a number of years and has been executed by several dififerent men. I 
was instituted by Prof. W. C. Kerr, while most of it has been done bi 
Mr. S. S. Gannett. Others who have contributed to it are Prof. J. B 
Gore, Mr. C. M. Yates, Mr. W. T. Griswold, and Mr. F. J. Knight. 

The text accompanying the descriptions and positions of points ii 
New England', New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania, and th< 
southern Appalachian region has been prepgp^^ljjr^f^S^xGannett

.<re. It rest8 upon two stations determined by the U. 8. Lake Sur- 
near Marquette. 

.iAXSAS: 

The work in Arkansas depends upon two base lines located respecti vely 
•ir Fort Smith and Little Rock. It was executed by Messrs. S. S. Gan- 
<i and G. T. Hawkins. A description has been prepared by the first- 
z^ gentleman. 

u5SAS: 

Tae work in Kansas consists practically of two belts of triangulation 
:jiing westward in different latitudes nearly across the State. They 
'-^Dd upon stations in western Missouri and eastern Kansas in the 
^iijcontinental belt of triangulation of the U. S. Coast and Geodetic 
-Tey. The work was executed by Messrs. B. U. Goode, J. H. Ren- 
..we, aud H. L. Baldwin^ and the text has been prepared by Mr. 
^.dwin. 

"\AS: 

rhe work in Texas is in two isolated parts. One extended area occu- 
*> the central part of the State, while the other, much more restricted, 
' i> the Trans- Pecos region. The first rests upon two base lines, one 
tar Amtin, the other near Cisco. This triangulation was executed 
Mei}8r8. B. U. Goode, E. M. Douglas, and C. F. Urquhart. 
Ibat in the Trans-Pecos region rests upon a base near £1 Paso. The 
'fk was done by Messrs. B. TJ. Gtoode, A. P. Davis, and C. F. Urqu- 
^'t. The text relating to the Texas work has been prepared by Mr. 
'rftde.

sonri Biver. The work was done by Messrs. J. H. Benshawe, E. M. 
Douglas, and Frank Tweedy. The descriptive text has been written 
by Mr. Tweedy. 

IDAHO t 

A base measured near Boise serves as the beginning of this work* 
The triangulation has been done by Mr. W. T. Griswold and the 
description of it was written by Mr. E. T. Perkins. 

CALIFORNIA t 

The work in Galifomia is in two parts, an extended area in central 
and northern California, extending northward into southwest Oregon, 
and a much smaller area in the neighborhood of Los Angeles and San 
Diego. The former of these areas rests upon stations of the TT. S. 
Coast and Geodetic Survey. The work has been executed by a num- 
ber of different men, Messrs. Gilbert Thompson, Mark B. Eerr, H. M. 
Wilson, £• M. Douglas, and H. £. G. Feusier. This work has been 
described by Mr. Douglas. 

The work in southern California rests upon a base measured by the 
U. S. Coast and Geodetic Survey. It has been executed by Mr. A. P. 
Davis, and is described by him. 

THE PIiATEAU REGION: 

The work in the Plateau region of New Mexico and Arizona rests 
upon a base measured near Fort Wingate, whence it has been extended 
eastward and westward. This work was done by MessrA Gilbert 
Thompson, A. P. Davis, F. J. Knight, and H. M. Wilson. The descrip- 
tion was prepared by Mr. Davis. 

The triangulation executed by early surveys in the West, known as 
the HaydeD, the Powell, and the Wheeler surveys, has been utilized 
to some extent for the control or initiation of work ; that of the Wheeler 
but little, and that of the Hayden to a greater extent, especially in 
Colorado. That of the Powell survey, the results of which have never 
heretofore been published, has been used very largely, inasmuch as the 
maps prepared by that organization have been published as atlas sheets 
by this Survey. These cover nearly all of Utah and northern Arizona, 
and it has seemed proper in this publication to include a description of 
this work and the positions of the points determined by it in extenso. 
A description of this work will be found in its proper place, written by 
Mr. A. H. Thompson, who, with^Mr. G. K. Gilbert, executed the work. 

All positions herewith presented are referred to the Clarke spheroid 
of revolution of 1866; the unit of length is the iron committee meter 
brought to this country by Hassler, and now in the possession of the 
Bureau .of Weights and Measures. In the Northeastern States, the 
positions are referred to the mean positions of the U. S. Coast and Geo- 
detic Survey; elsewhere they are, as stated in the text accompanying 
the various groups of work, referred to isolated astronomical determina- 
tions, which are, of course, subject to unknown station errors.

METHODS OF WORK. 

MA.LMK. 

The triangulation in sonthwestem Maine executed in 1888 was based 
upon two stations of the IT. 8. Coast and Geodetic Survey, Ossipee and 
Independence; a third, Agamenticus, was occupied, but the station 
mark could not be identified and a new point was established. From 
these stations thirteen others in York and Cumberland counties, dis- 
tributed over seven atlas sheets, were located. 

In 1890 a system of quadrilaterals was extended from Sabattus-Blin, 
stations of the U. S. Coast and Geodetic Survey, up the Kennebec Val- 
ley about 45 miles; twelve stations, distributed over five atlas sheets, 
were located. Isolated, bare hills favorably located for topographic 
puri>oses were generally utilized. A tripod signal of simple form was 
used, the materials for which were generally obtainable at the nearest 
farmhouse. 

Angles were measured by S. S, Gannett with a Fauth 8-inch theodo- 
lite, reading by micrometer microscopes to two seconds of arc. Local 
or station adjustment was made in most cases, but figure acyustment 
was not considered necessary and has not been made. 

NEW HAMPSHIRB. 

In 1892 the triangulation of the U. S. Coast and Geodetic Survey in 
the White Mountain region was supplemented by cutting in additional 
points. Mounts Washington, Kearsarge, and Lafayette were used 
as initial points, and three other stations were occupied; altogether, 
eleven points, furnishing control for four atlas sheets, were located. 

Angles were measured with a Fauth 8-inch theodolite by S. S. Gan» 
nett and B. C. Washington, jr. Adjustment of figures by least squares 
was not made. ^ 

MASSACHUSETTS. 

Eleven new stations, controlling four atlas sheets, were located in 
Worcester County in 1887 by Mr. R. U. Goode. The lines Wachusett- 
Watatic and Wachusett-Fay, established by the 17. S. Coast and Geo- 
detic Survey, were used as bases. 

Lone trees on bare hills were utilized as signals. 

Angles were measured with the Gambey 11-inch theodolite, reading 
by verniers to ten seconds. This work was not adjusted. -^^^Q*^^

[BULL. 122. 



RHODR ISLAND. 

The western portion of Rhode Island was controlled during 1888 by 
triangulation extended from the lines of the U. S. Coast and Geodetic 
Survey, Beaconpole-Spencer, Spencer-Sherman, and Shermau-Ghaw- 
plin. This work was slow and difficult. The hills being of about the 
same height and heavily wooded, the building of high scaffolds was 
necessary. A tall tree was usually selected, its branches cut off, and 
the trunk used as one leg of a triangular scaffold. 

Angles were measured with a light 6-inch theodolite mounted on its 
own tripod on the floor of the scaffold from 40 to 60 feet above the 
ground. 

This work was done by Mr. R. U, Goode and Mr, O. F. IJrquhart. 
No least square adjustments were made. 

CONNECTICUT. 

Control for north central Connecticut was obtained by extending tri- 
angulation from the U. 8. Coast and Geodetic Survey stations Good Hill, 
Mount Tom, and Ivy, in Litchfield and Hartford counties, and from 
Box Hill and Bald Hill in Tolland, Windham, and New London counties. 

Seventeen stations, controlling ten atlas sheets, were located in 1889. 
Isolated, cleared hills were usually available, and were selected as sta- 
tions. Various forms of signals were used, the usual form being a tri- 
pod under which the theodolite was centered. 

Angles were measured with a Fauth 8-inch theodolite, reading by 
micrometer to two seconds, by S. S. Gannett. 

A least square adjustment of the angles was made at each station, 
but no figure adjustment was made.

HBW YOBK AKD PENNSYLVAinA. 
METHODS OF WORK. 

MKW TOBK. 

A comparatively Bmall amoimt of triangalation has as yet been neces- 
sary in addition to that of other organizations. The State is about 
half covered by triangnlation, including the work of the U. S. Lake 
Survey, along the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence Biver; that of the 
U. S. Coast and Geodetic Survey along the Hudson Biver, Lake Cham- 
plain^ and the Mohawk Valley; and that of the Kew York State survey 
in the central and southern portions of the State. The work in certain 
areas was supplemented by the U. S. Geological Survey during 1892 and 
1893. In June, 1892, a small belt was extended northeastward through 
Washington County, starting from stations Greenwich, BaHnesque, of the 
U. 8. Coast and Geodetic Survey. I^ine stations, controlling four atlas 
sheets, were occupied. Stations were located on bare hills, though 
they were not always the highest in the locality, to avoid erection of 
expensive scaffolds, or heavy damages for destruction of timber. 

Later in the season of 1892 a system of quadrilaterals was started 
aoross the CatskiU region from Powell*Merino, stations of the U. S. 
Coast and Geodetic Survey in the Hudson Valley near Coxsackie. Seven 
stations, controlling three atlas sheets, were located. Old observato- 
ries were found on many of the wooded mountain summits and were 
sighted as signals and occupied with the theodolite. 

During 1893 work was extended across Clinton County from the line 
Lyon-Dannemora, of the IT. S. Coast and Geodetic Survey. The north- 
em border of the State is very difficult to triangulate, there being no 
well-defined x)oints after leaving the high rocky x>eaks of the Adiron- 
dack region, the ridges being flat and heavily wooded. Eight stations 
within three atlas sheets were located. 

The work in Oswego and Jefferson counties was based upon stations 
of the n. S. Lake Survey, Sandy Creek- Mannsville being used as a base 
m Oswego County and Cooper-Gleason in Jefferson County. Eighteen 
stations were occupied in this portion of the State, fhrnishing control 
for five atlas sheets. 

A few stations in addition to those of the U. S. Lake Survey were 
located in Chautauqua and Erie counties. The line Silver Creek-Dun- 
lurk light-house was used as a base from which the positions of five 
stations were determined.

RESULTS OF PRIMARY TRIANGULATION. 



[BOLU12L 



In October, 1893, four stations were located iu Ulster County, south- 
west of Kingston ; these were based upon Terry, Prospect, and Lloyd, 
stations of the U. S. Coast and Geodetic Survey on the banks of the 
Hudson near Bondout. 

All of the work of the U. S. Geological Survey in New York has been 
done by 8. S. Gannett, assisted by B. C. Washington, jr. A Fautb 
8-inch theodolite has been used, angles having been read, in most cases, 
by the method of directions. No least square figure a<^nstment hae 
been made. 

PENNSYLVANIA. 

Triangulation of the U. S. Coast and Geodetic Survey in the anthra- 
cite coal region was supplemented during the years 1889, 1890, and 189L 
Twenty-five points were located, ftirnishing control for fifteen atlas 
sheets. 

The location of stations on flat, wooded, mountain summits in many 
cases necessitated the elevation of the theodolite from 10 to 50 feet 
above the ground, an Interior tripod for the support of the instrument 
being built with an exterior structure for the observer. 

In August, 1892, a few stations were added to those already located 
in the vicinity of Beading and AUentown. Angles were measured witii 
a Fauth 8-inch theodolite. No figure adjustment has been made.

SOUTHERN APPALACHIAN REGION. 
METHODS OF WORK. 

Portions of VirgiDia, West Virginia, and Maryland lying north of 
latitude 39^ and between longitudes 78^ and 80^ were controlled by tri- 
Angulation in 1884 by W. T. Griswold, assisted by L. C, Fletcher. This 
work was based upon the line Fork-Marshall of the IT. S. Coast and Geo- 
detic Survey. Angles were measured with a Schilling 6-inch theodolite, 
reading by vernier to 10 seconds. 

» Triangulation in the southwestern x>ortiou of Virginia was commenced 
in 1883 by Prof. J. H. Gore, assisted by G. F. Wakefield. A series 
of triangles and quadrilaterals was started at the line Paint- Ivy of 
the U. S. Coast and Geodetic Survey in Fayette County, W. Va., and 
extended south westward for 100 miles through Scott, Wise, Dickinson, 
Buchanan, and Tazewell counties, Virginia, to the lineChimney-Holston 
in eastern Tennessee, previously established by triangnils^tion party 
No. 1 of the Geological Survey. 

The instrument used in this work was a Kiibel 6-inch theodolite, read- 
ing by verniers to 10 seconds. 

Two stations of this belt were used for extending triangulation into 
eastern Kentucky. This was done during 1884 by G. F. Wakefield, 
using a 6-inch theodolite, reading by verniers to 10 seconds. 

All that portion of Virginia lying north and west of the Blue Eidge 
and west of the peaks of Otter which was without control was trian- 
gulated during 1885 and 1886 by S. S. Gannett, using a Fauth 7-inch 
theodolite, reading by verniers to 10 seconds. 

In 1888 portions of the counties of Prince Edward* and Buckingham 
were controlled by F. J. Knight, the work being based upon the U. S. 
Coast and GeodeMc Survey line Smith-Long. 

In 1889 Pittsylvania and Campbell counties were triangulated by C. 
M. Yeates, using a Fauth 7-inch theodolite, reading by verniers to 10 
seconds. 

In addition to the work previously mentioned as having been done 
in Kentucky, several stations were located in Harlan and Bell counties 
during 1885 by F. J. Knight, based upon stations of the Geological 
Survey, White Rocks- War Gap. ^ 

In 1888 and 1890 C. M. Yeates extended triangulation over that por- 
tion of Kentucky lying between the parallels of 37^ and 38^ and between 
the meridians of 83^ and 85^. 

The nature of this country made this work most difficult, the hills 
being of the same height and heavily timbered. Much time was spent

in selecting stations and clearing them of timber, and even then only 
short lines of sight conld be obtained. 

A Fauth 7-inch (vernier) theodolite was used during the field season 
of 1888, and an 8-inch (micrometer) theodolite during 1890. 

Triangulation was extended over the monntainous portion of west- 
ern North Carolina and eastern Tennessee, between the Blue Eidge 
and the escarpment of the Cumberland Plateau during the field sea- 
sons of 1882, 1883, 1884, and 1885. Tliis work was begun by Prof. W. 
C. Kerr at stations Benn and Poore of the U. S. Coast and Geodetic 
Survey in October, 1882. It was extended during 1883 by Prof. Kerr, 
assisted by S. S. Gannett, and further extended by the latter during 
1884 and 1885. 

A Kubel 6-inch (vernier) theodolite was used at first, which was 
replaced later by a Fauth 7-inch (vernier) theodolite. 

In all of the work in the Appalachian Mount»un region a lone tree 
has been commonly used as a signal. Most of the summits were found 
to be wooded. AU trees obstructing the view were usually cut away. 
A tall symmetrical tree standing on the highest part of the summit 
was trimmed up and left as signal and mark. On bald summits a 
signal was usually made of saplings fastened together a few feet from 
the top and raised in form of a tripod. 

In nearly all of the Appalachian triangulation a least square station 
and figure adjustment has been made.

A narrow belt of trian^ation was extended westward from Mar- 
quette in 1889. It rested upon two stations of the U. S. Lake Survey, 
Mesnard-Triloba. Angles were measured with a Schilling 6^ inch 
theodolite by F. J. Knight. Stations were selected on rocky knobs on 
either side of the railroad.

ARKANSAS. 
METHODS OF WORK. 

The trianfrnlation in Arkansas starts from a base located just west 
of the State line in the Indian Territory and connected with the astro- 
nomical station of the U. S. Coast and Oeodetic Survey at Fort Smith. 
It extends eastward along the thirty-fifth parallel of latitude to Little 
Rock, near which city a check base was measured. DiflBculty was 
experienced in finding a favorable location for the initial base, but the 
site finally selected was in an open prairie bordered by several moan- 
tain ranges over 2,000 feet high, which furnished good points for 
expansion. 

The initial base was measured at night with a 300-foot steel tape, od 
the roadbed of the St. Louis and San Francisco Railroad, beginning 
at Cameron, and was 2-84 miles in length. It was divided into sections 
of 1,200 feet, or 4 tape lengths, each section being measured three 
times. The tape was stretched under a tension of 20 pounds and the 
temperature noted at each tape length. A wye level was used to deter- 
mine^ the relative elevations of stations. The base near Little Rock was 
nieasured twice on a cloudy day, its length being 3*72 miles. The 
azimuth of each base was determined by observations on Polaris near 
elongation. 

The axial length of the belt of triangulation connecting the two bases 
is 135 miles; number of stations occupied, twenty-seven. This work 
was commenced in 1887 by S. S. Gannett, assisted by G. T. Hawkins, 
and finished in 1888. The angles at most of the stations were meas- 
ured with a Fauth 7-inch (vernier) theodolite, but at the stations in the 
expansion of the Little Rock base a new Fauth 8-inch (micrometer) 
theodolite was used. The computation included a complete least square 
station and figure adjustment. 

A belt of triangulation was extended during 1889, 1800, and 1891 from 
Fourche-Reynolds, stations of the initial belt near Morrillton, north- 
ward to Missouri ; thence westward along the southern border of that 
State for about GO miles; thence southward, joining the initial belt at 
the line Pinnacle-Sugarloaf, 20 miles southeast of Fort Smith. Angles 
at stations in this belt were measured with a Fauth 8-inch (micrometer) 
theodolite by George T. Hawkins. Azimuths were observed at inter- 
vals of about 50 miles. 

Triangulation in this State was conducted generally in a manner 
similar to that pursued in the Appalachian Mountain region: that is,

KANSAS. 



METHODS OF WORK. 

The triangiilation in Kansas conducted by the Geological Survey is 
in three detached belts, each of which starts from a line or lines of the 
transcontinental triangulation of the U. S. Coast and Geodetic Survey- 
The southern belt begins with the line Fnlton-flutton Mound some 
20 miles east of the Missouri-Kansas line, and proceeds nearly due west 
until the Arkansas Eiver is reached at Hutchinson. From litre the 
general course of the river is followed as far as Lamed, at which point 
topographic conditions favored a detour to the west and nouthwest to 
Dodge, after which the river was again followed to the preseut termiiius 
near Hartland. 

Field work of triangulation was begun in 1885 by R. TJ- Goode, who 
continued it as far as Florence. The instrument used was a Gambey 
11 -inch repeating theodolite with two verniers reading to ten seconds* 
No azimuth observations were taken at the time, but a subsequent 
observation at Florence showed only a very small error. In 18811 this 
belt was continued westward by H, L. Baldwin, jr., as tar as Spear- 
ville. The instrument used was a Fauth 8-inch theodolite, T^o* 362, 
reading with two microscopes to 2 seconds. Azimuths were taken 
at intervals of about 50 miles in this and all subsequent work. 

At Spearville a base line 7'1 miles in length was meai^nred with a 
300-foot steel tape under very favorable conditions. The hase line was 
divided into thirteen sections of 3,000 feet each, two complt^tc meii surra 
of each section being made. About half of the sections were lueasiiriHl 
a third time, when work was stopped by an accident. The resulting 
probable error of the base is 0'39 inch. An astronomical determina- 
tion of the latitude and longitude of the Spearville end of tlie base 
was made in 1889 by Prof. R. S% Woodward, signals beiu^ ext'Langed 
with Si. Louis on three nights. 

In 1889 work was resumed at Spearville, and continued by a .series 
of small but well-proportioned quadrilaterals to its pre?4(Mit ternimus 
near Hartland. All of the southern belt west of Florence rests uijoii 
the Spearville base. The average errors of closure of thL^ tti angles 
for each year's field work, before station adjustment was made, were 
respectively 7"-85, a''-25, and l''-73. 

The northeastern belt of triangulation was executed uofler the direc- 
tion of Mr. John H. Renshawe in 1886. The angles were measured 
by Mr. E. T. Perkins, jr., excepting those from a fewigiirfd ^litS(Di(Dgle

stations, which were observed by Mr. George T. Hawkins. The iustru- 
ment used was the Gambey ll-inch theodolite used during the previous I 
year in the southern belt. The work is based ux>on the U. S. Coast and 
Geodetic Survey line Blue Mound-Eckman, near Lawrence, and pro- 1 
ceeds in a westerly direction, the axis of triangulation being about 
parallel to and 20 miles north of the Kansas Biver. 

The northern belt of triangulation, executed by Mr. H, L. Baldwin, I 
jr., in 1890, uses for initial. i)ositions three stations of the transconti. 
nental triangulation of the U. S. Coast and Geodetic Survey, Vine 1 
Creek-Frey-Wilmer. It first proceeds northward 40 miles, and then j 
takes a general westerly course to its present terminus near Lenora, 
Kana. The triangulation consists of a series of wel][-proi>ortioned 
quadrilaterals of much larger size than in the other two belts, which 
was rendered possible by more favorable topographic conditions. The 
instrument used was a Fauth 8inch theodolite, No. 362, reading by two 
micrometers to 2", Owing to the small errors of closure no figure 
or station adjustment was necessary. The average error of closure in 
60 triangles is 2"-07. I 

In all of the Kansas triangulation well-proportioned figures with , 
occasional single triangles were used, since the topography rendered it | 
possible to place stations wherever desirable. Angles were read by 
the method of directions, both singly and combined, in such manner 
as to give check observations on each angle which entered into the 
computations. Adjustments by the method of least squai^es were made 
in the earlier work, in which less accurate instruments were used, j 
In the later work the closures were so good as to render least-square j 
adjustments unnecessary. 

Nearly all of the stations in this work consisted of tripod signals ! 
built of rough lumber. Most of the earlier ones were tripods about 10 
feet in height supporting an upright 4 by 4 pole and boarded to near 
the ground, so as to be readily distinguishable at a distance. In the 
later work the tripod was left more open and a target similar to that 
used by the Missouri Kiver Commission, consisting of boards covered 
with white and black cloth and nailed on the pole at right angles to \ 
each other, was employed. In some cases, where it was necessary to ; 
elevate the instrument, a higher and larger scaffold was built for the 
support of the observer and within this a smaller tripod was erected for 
the support of the instrument. ! 

In connection with the triaiUgulation in Kansas a large number of 
townships and section corners were located usually by the method of I 
directions and distances from the triangulation stations. These Iocs- | 
tions were made for the purpose of establishing control for the topo- I 
graphic work, which, in the plains country, is largely based on the [ 
land surveys. j 

A list of these comers with their positions is appended.

METHODS OF WORK. 



Triangulation has been carried on in Texas in two general locali 
namely: Middle Texas, or the area between longitude 96^ 30' 
lOlo, and Transpecos Texas. Tlie work in the latter region ext 
fipom the western portion of the State as far eastward as longitude 1 
and covers the territory between the Eio Grande and the New Me 
boundary line. It embraces an area of about 15,000 square miles, 
may be described as a belt about 60 miles in width extending fi-oi 
Paso about 250 miles down the Rio Grande. The triangulation ea 
the Pecos covers an area of about 50,000 square miles, which is app: 
mately included in a four-sided figure, with Dallas, Roby in Fi 
County, Brackettville, and Bastrop at the corners. ' 

Work upon the eastern triangulation was commenced in the vic^ 
of Austin in the summer of 1884. A base line was measured by £ 
Douglas, assisted by C. H. Fitch, with four meter bars. The loca 
of this base is about ten miles southeast from Austin, near Onion Ci 
and its adopted length 10,307*201 meters, or about 6-4 miles. De 
relating to the Austin base line can be found in the administrs 
report of Mr. Henry Gannett contained in the Sixth Annual Rej 
1884-'85. The development from this base included the location 
I)oint in Austin, the astronomical position of which had been previo 
determined by the U. S. Coast and Geodetic Survey, and from this p 
the geodetic positions of the various triangulation points were deri 
The azimuth of the Austin base line was determined by Prof. A 
Thompson. 

The work in Texas remained for two seasons under charge of 
Douglas. He was relieved in 1886 by Mr. R. U. Goode, under w 
direction all operations in Texas have since been conducted exce 
small amount of work around Sierra Blauca in connection with 
establishment of the one hundred and fifth mendian, as herein: 
explained. The triangulation was extended year by year northi 
and westward from Austin, and in 1889 a base line of verification 
measured near Albany, partially along a railroad tangent througl 
town, and new astronomic and azimuth determinations were made 

The Albany base line is about 9 miles in length and was n 
ured twice with a 300-foot steel tape stretched under a tension i 
pounds. The tape was supjwrted by stakes at intervals of 60

li were aligned and brought to the grade established by more sub- 
ial supports, the latter having been previously set in the ground 
eet apart, and upon which markings of the extremities of the 
were made. The two direct measurements differed by 0*167 feet, 
^hen temi>erature corrections were applied the resulting discrep^ 
was somewhat greater, owing x>ossibly to difficulty experienced at 
[me of measurement in obtaining the true temperature of the tape, 
idopted length of the line after applying the corrections for tern- 
ure, length of tape, difference on posts, inclination, sag, and sea 
was 45793.662 feet. 

e triangulation was extended from the Albany base eastward 
liles to Dallas, then southward to Temple, where another check 
Dbtained by joining with distances from Austin base. The work 
Iso been carried 250 miles southward and 100 miles westward 
Albany. This work as above was executed principally by CharleH 
cquhart. After the measurement of the Albany base observations 
dmuth were obtained each year. 

e instruments used in this work were an 8-inch theodolite with 
ers reading to 10 seconds in 1884-'86-^86, and afterwards an instru- 
with an 11-iuch Gambey circle reading by microscopes to single 
ids. Various methods of observations were used, principally, how- 
that of directions, and the whole system of triangulation, both 
and west of Pecos river, has been divided into convenient figures 
irdjusted by the method of least squares, while station adjustments 
le same method were also made whenever necessary, 
[angulation was conmienced in Transpecos Texas, near Sierra 
ca, in the spring of 1890. Prof. E. 8. Woodward measured a base 
dong the Texas and Pacific Railway and determined the astronom- 
position of a pier at Sierra Blanca, near the western extremity 
e base line, and Mr. A. P. Davis developed a small system of tri- 
lation around Sierra Blanca for the purpose of locating on the 
l's surface the one hundred and fifth meridian. For a full descrip- 
:)f the above operations see Bulletin 70. The work was continued 
is locality in 1891 by Mr. E. U. Gk)ode, who extended the system 
Lward and westward, and in 1892 by Mr. Charles F. Urquhart eastr 
and southward. 

e signals used in the middle portions of the State were usually 
) from sawed lumber, the instruments resting on the ground or ele- 
I as the circumstances required. In the latter cases a scaffold for 
upi)ort of the observer was always erected around an interior tri- 
m which the instrument rested. In a few instances when it was 
lecessary to elevate the instrument above the surface of the ground , 
, when found suitably located, were trimmed and the tops used 
[gnals. In the Transpecos regions the triangulation stations were 
lly at the summit of sharp and well-defined peaks, and conical piles 
oue from 8 to X2 feet in height were used as signals.

SOUTH DAKOTA. 

METHODS OF WORK. 

The area actually covered by the work in the Black Hills is about 
2,500 square miles, extending from the Nebraska state Hdc, latitude 
430 00^ to latitude 44^ 30'. 

The work was commenced in 1891 by Mr. C. H. Fitch, who selected a 
site for a base line of which he made a preliminary measurement. The 
line is in the valley of Box Elder Creek about 4 miles northeast of Rapid 
City. Mr. W. S. Post, in the same year, built signals at a few stations 
of the expansion, but was prevented by bad weather from measuring 
the final angles. 

In the fall of 1893 Mr. E. M. Douglas remeasured the base line and 
located eighteen stations in its development and in the main system of 
triangulation, including the connection with the astronomical pier at 
Bapid City. 'The base line was measured three times with a 300-foot 
steel tape; temperature \¥^as taken at each tape length; the line was 
supported at each 50 feet and was under a uniform tension of 20 pounds. 
The adopted length of the line after making corrections for slope, tem- 
perature, reduction to sea level, etc., is 25,796-116 feet (nearly 5 miles), 
and the probable error of the three measurements is 0*84 inch. 

The initial astronomical point on which the triangulation depends is 
a pier in the county courthouse yard in Rapid City, the position of 
which was determined by Mr. §. S. Gannett, in 1890, by latitudes from 
zenith distances and longitudes from telegraphic exchange of time 
with St. Louis observatory. Mr. Gannett at the same time fixed a 
point on the meridian about 1 mile north. From this meridfan the 
azimuths were computed. 

Observations were taken by single and combined directions and the 
whole scheme of triangulation was divided into blocks of about 5 sta- 
tions each and adjusted by least squares. The stations and signals con- 
sisted of low tripods of lumber with a signal pole in the center, under 
which the instrument was placed.

ASPEX, COLO. 
METHODS OF WORK. 

This work was commeneed in 1891 by Morris Bien, who measured a 
base line 1 mile in length along one of the streets of Aspen. This 
line was expanded and a number of stations located for immediate use 
in making a large scale map of the mining district. In 1893 the tri- 
an^ation was extended over an area of about 400 square miles by 
E. M. Douglas. 

An attempt was made to compute a base line for the work from two 
unclosed triangles of the Hayden survey, but as the two values for the 
line thus computed differed materially they were both rejected and the 
line between Bien's station 12 and 47 as computed by him was adopted 
for a base. It so happened that this distance is nearly the mean of the 
two determinations from the Hayden angles. The initial latitude and 
longitude for the work are from the U. S. C. & G. S. position of Treas- 
ury Mountain, a station in the transcontinental scheme. The azimuth 
is from the U. S. C. & 6. S. determination at the same i)oint. The 
positions thus derived differ from the Hayden location about 9 seconds 
in latitude and 18 seconds in longitude. Angles were measured by the 
method of repetition in sets of five, using an 8-inch vernier theodolite 
reading to 10 seconds. The stations and figures were arbitrarily 
adjusted, the limited extent of the work not justifying the adjustment 
by least squares.

METHODS OF WORK. 



The scheme of triangulation at Laramie, Wyo., dei>ends u 
astroDomical station at Laramie determined in 1872 by the U. 
graphical Surveys west of the one hundredth meridian. The 
ment used was a Wurdemann zenith telescope, J. H. Clark be 
observer. Telegraphic communication for longitude was mac 
Salt Lake City, Utah. During September, 1892, Mr. Frank 1 
of the U. S. Geological Survey, made a small development from 
base measured along the ties of the Union Pacific Eailroad jus 
of the town of Laramie. Two measurements were made with 
foot steel tape during a cloudy day, giving the following result* 



First measarement corrected for temperature and inclination 1^ 

Second measurement corrected for temperature and inclination Ic 

Difference j 

Mean base reduced to sea level 1^ 

This base was selected and measured hurriedly in order to g 
topographic parties immediate control for their work, it being thi 
tion to remeasure it later in the season or to select a new bas4 
would afford a better development, but this plan was not carri 
The ends of the base were not marked permanently but were 
ferred to two points. Soda and Antelope. The astronomical 
was connected with Soda through University and not with tl 
porary base. 

Since the astronomical station was established the city of I 
has grown up around it, and it is now surrounded by trees anc 
ings. The dome of the State University was connected with t 
tion by a series of measurements along the streets of the town 
solar transit and a 300- foot steel tape. The instrument used 
triangulation was an 8-inch Fauth micrometer microscope the< 
Tripod signals were built on all stations occupied in advance 
angle work. No least square adjustment has been applied to th 
gulation.

During October, 1877, Lieut. Tillman, of the U. S. Geographies 
west of the one hundredth meridian, selected the present ' 
base, which is located just west of the town of Bozeman, and mc 
with a steel tape. He also connected it with the astronomies 
and determined the azimuth, but carried on no expansion. 

In 1883 Mr. J. H. Eenshawe, of the U. 8. Geological 8urveyj 
by Mr. H. 8. Chase, remeasured the base with a secondary hi 
ratus. The whole line was measured once and also computed 
gulation from a second measurement of the middle third wit! 
lowing result: 

Length of base by first measurement 

Length of base by triangnlation from middle third 

Weighted mean , 

Length of base reduced to sea level 

Mr. J. H. Eenshawe, during 1882, and his assistant, Mr. H. { 
in 1883-'84, connected the base with the astronomical station am 
an expansion southward into the Yellowstone INational Pai 
instrument used in this triangulation was a 10-inch vernier tl 
reading to 10 seconds. The method of observing angles was $ 
that of circle readings and repeated angles, establishing condi 
station adjustment. 

In 1886 Mr. E. M. Douglas was placed in charge of the trian 
in Montana, and during the field season of 1886-'87-'88reoc( npi 
of the stations of 1882-'84 and extended the triangulation thro

from arbitrary adjuBtments, as the character of the work did not warrant 
a more rigid adjustment, the weather conditions having been very 
nnfavorable for the performance of close work. 

The instrument employed was an 8-inch vernier theodolite reading 
to 10 seconds. Natural points were generally sighted in advance of 
occupation. The method of reading angles was that of the earlier work 
of Messrs. Benshawe and Chase. A number of distant outlying points 
on the north and west have been sighted to, but not occupied. 

During 1889 Mr. Frank Tweedy carried a short system of triangula- 
tiou down the Yellowstone Eiver from Bridger-Grazy as a base and in 
1889 extended this work eastward to Fort Custer and southward to the 
Wyoming line, having reoccupied all his stations of 1889. In this work 
the instrument used was an 8-inch Fauth micrometer microscope the- 
odolite. In all this work either stone cairns on the higher points or 
simple wooden tripods 10 to 20 feet high on the lower points were erected 
in advance of the instrumental work for signals. 

At Fort Custer a check base about 5 miles long was selected and 
marked, but not measured. The stations connecting it with the tri- 
angulation were occupied, but the base figure has not been adjusted. 
Mr. W. S. Post, in 1891, extended a narrow belt of triangles from the 
stations Bed Bluff-Little Horn near the Wyoming line eastward across 
northern Wyoming to a base atBapid City, S. Dak., but stormy weather 
prevented his occupying his stations with sufficient completeness to 
form a connection between the Bozeman and Eapid City bases. The 
triangulation of 1891 has a somewhat weak connection with the Boze- 
man base through the line Bridger- Crazy.

METHODS OF WORK. 

The triangulation in Idaho covers an area of about '. 
miles, in the form of a parallelogram, 100 miles in breadtl 
ill length, in the center of the southern part of the Stai 
trum the western boundary as far east as Hailey. Work 
the summer of 1889 and continued during the seasons of 

A base line 4f miles in length was measured near B< 
triiiiigulation expansion from this base governs the topog 
III the measurement of the base a steel tape line 100 feet i — 
used with a resulting i)robable error of 0.19 foot. In th€ 
telegraphic connection was had with the observatory at S 

af^tronomical observations were taken to determine the 

pirr near the west end of the Boise base and the initial 
angulation. 

In expanding this base a 7-inch theodolite, reading to 10 1 
used during the seasons of 1889 and 1890. During the sea 
and 1892 a 10-inch theodolite, with micrometer microsco 
to 2 seconds, was used. Circle readings, direct and reven 
general order of procedure, and as a rule angles were measu 
piHuts, without artificial signals, these signals not being ba 
stiition was occupied, the natural points generally being 
determinate. In a few instances in which the object sight€ 
gOiHl natural point, signals were built before observations 

During the period of use of the 7-inch theodolite the ft ^ 
U4 1 i listed by the method of least squares. When the lO-inc] n 
wjKs used arbitrary adjustments were made. 

The triangulation and base measurements were made bj

CALIFORNIA, NEVADA, AND SOUTHERN OREGON. 
METHODS OP WORK. 

The triangalation of Galifomia is in three Reparate and independent 
sections^ namely, the Cascade section, in northern California and sonth- 
ern Oregon ; the Gold Belt section, including the Sierras from Red BluflF 
to Yosemite Valley, and from the Sacramento Valley eastward well into 
Nerada. The third section, includes a few stations in the Coast Range, 
southeast of San Francisco. 

The first work was done in 1882 and continued in 1883 by Gilbert 
Thompson in the vicinity of Mount Shasta. Work was carried forward in 
this section by Mark B. Kerr and Eugene Ricksecker until 1886 and by 
W. T. Griswold in 1887. All distances, azimuths, and positions depend 
on the position of Lassen and on the line Lassen-Shasta, as com- 
puted by B. M. Douglas from unclosed triangles of the U. S. Coast and 
Geodetic Survey. The instrument used was an 8-inch lO-second vernier 
theodolite. Natural i)oints were generally sighted and single and double 
angles measured by circle readings. The work was all adjusted by least 
squares. 

In the Gold Belt section work was commenced in 1885 by H. M. 
Wilson, who measured a base line with steel tape near Oroville for tem- 
porary use. The distances thus obtained were afterwards replaced by 
others depending on the U. S. Coast and Geodetic Survey transconti- 
nental line Marysville Butte-Pine Hill, afterwards checked by the lines 
between Lola, Pine Hill, Round Top and Pah Rah and Como. The 
instrument used for nearly all the work was an 8-inch 10-second theod- 
oUte. A few angles were measured in 1885 with a 7-inch theodolite. 
The method of circle readings was generally adopted for measuring 
angles, and least-square adjustment was made for station and figure. 

During the years from 1889 to 1893 the triangulation was carried on 
hy H. E. C. Feusier, who located points as far south as the Yosemite 
Valley and eastward into Nevada to Walker Lake. A few stations in 
(/alifomia and Nevada, in the vicinity of Taylorsville, Cal., were 
occupied in 1890 by E. M. Douglas, using an 8-iuch micrometer theod- 
olite. The initial stations for this work were Lola-Pah Rah, two stations 
of the U. S. Coast and Geodetic Survey transcontinental triangulation. 

In this work good, bare, natural peaks were found on nearly all of 
the stations occupied in the Oregon and Nevada portions of the work. 
On these, stone monuments were erected to mark the stations and serve 
as signals. In the Gold Belt work, however, many of the hills were 
timbered or were so flat on top as to require the construction of special 
ignalB. In some cases these consisted of trimmed trees to mark the

station and serve as signals. In a few instances, high observing scaf- 
folds were bnilt, notably in the case of Pike Connty Peak, where the 
signal was placed on such a scaffold 66 feet in height. In many of the 
cases where the hills were heavily timbered, heliotropes were used 
extensively as signals and the stations marked by small cairns of rock.

METHODS OF WOBK. 



The triangalation iu soatiiem California was begun in July, 1891, and 
covers an area of about 5,000 square miles. The line Wire-KeUy, as 
fixed by positions obtained from the TJ. S. Coast and Geodetic Survey, 
was taken as the basis of the work of 1891, which includes the line 
Wire-Mora and all points south of that line. Subsequent work depends 
upon the line Southeast Base-San Juan, as given by the same organiza- 
tion. The instrument used in this work was an 8-inch nonrepeating 
theodolite reading by micrometer to two seconds, and by estimation to 
one-fifth of a second. The angles were measured individually and by 
directions with telescope direct and reversed and on different positions 
of the circle. The station adjustment was made arbitrarily, the angles 
being required to agree among themselves and to close the horizon. 
Figures were adjusted by the method of least squares. All work in 
eonjiection with this triangulation was done by Mr. A. P. Davis.

PLATE ATT REGION OF NEW MEXICO, EASTERN ARIZONA,' 

AND UTAH. : 

METHODS OF WORK. | 

• 

This triangnlation extends over parts of northern New Mexico and 
eastern Arizona and southeastern Utah, with a few points reaching ; 
into Nevada, California, and Colorado. The work dei>ends on the base ; 
line at Fort Wingate, New Mexico, which was measured and expanded 
in 1881 and 1882, and the triangnlation carried forward as required for 
topographic work until the year 1890. 

The base line was measured by Prof. J. Howard Gore in 1881, in the 
valley of the Rio Puerco, near Fort Wingat-e, using a 4-meter base 
bar apparatus deMgned by the U. S. Coast and Geodetic Survey, and 
has a length, after all corrections are applied, of 6,721,893 meters. 
The latitude, longitude, and azimuth of the base were determined in 
1883 by Prof. A, H. Thompson, assisted by Arthur P. Davis. A 
Wurdeman combined zenith telescope and transit was used. Longi- 
tude was obtained by exchange of time signals with the observatory 
of the Washington University at St. Louis, Prof. H. S, Pritchett 
conducting the observ^ations and exchanges at this place. Latitude 
was determined by the method of zenith distances. 

The final results of these observations gives as the x>osition of the 
east end of the Wingate base line: Latitude, 35^ 30' 17'"80. Longi- 
tude, 108O 30' 28-"08. 

The expansion was made by Prof, Gilbert Thompson, in 1881, and 
Prof. A. H. Thompson in 1882 and 1883, from the base line, both using 
a Kubel 10-inch repeating vernier theodolite reading to five seconds. 
DiflTerent stations were used* in these separate expansions. Subse- 
quent triangnlation was performed with the same instrument by 
Arthur P. Davis until 1890, when a nonrepeating 8-inch micrometer 
theodolite was used. In the latter part of the season of 1890 the obser- 
vations were made by Mr. Fred. J. Knight. All that portion of the 
triangnlation west of the one hundred and twelfth meridian was exe- 
cuted by Mr. H. M. Wilson in 1884, with an 8-inch vernier theodolite 
reading to ten seconds. 

In general, the method adopted for the measurement of angles was 
that of directions, the aim being to obtain from eight to twelve com- 
plete sets, inclading all visible stations. Readings were made on dif- 
ferent i)arts of the circle and with the telescope in direct and reversed 
position. Measurements were made of single angles and of combina- 
tions, in order to obtain conditions for the adjustment, which was made 
both of stations and figures, by the method of least squares.

Many of the stations in this triangulation were natural points. 
Upon these no signals were erected before observing. In other cases, 
signals^ either of stone, brash, or trees, were erected. In all cases per- 
manent marks were left to indicate the exact x>oint sighted. 

The triangulation covered and gave control points for topography 
over an area of, approximately, 94,000 square miles. 

A descriptive list of stations follows:

NAVAJO 









In San Juan Co., Utah, south of the Colorado River, near Lee's Perry. 
It is difficult to approach except from the south. It is heavily tim- 
bered, with tall pine Wd balsam. The station consists of a scaffold, 
built of five tall trees near the highest point. The instrument was 
placed on this scaffold, and lanes cut to the point-s sighted. The signal 
was seen from Wilson, Oraibe, Calabasa, Sonsala, Pastora, Ut« Peak, 
Abajo, and Peale, the latter being over 140Lmiles distant. When Navajo 
vas occupied the tallest tree had to be cut off for a 8upx)ort for the 
theodohte indei>endent of the platform. The instrument was 27 feet 
above the ground.

This station is on a low knoll in Valencia Co., N. Mex., about 2 miles 
east of the astronomical pier at Wingate Station, K* Mex. 

Permanent mark : A stone x)Ost set firmly in the ground. A cross 
cut in the upper surface marks the exact point of the base line and the 
position of the theodolite in observing angles. The azimuth of the base 
line was determined by observations at this station on Polaris. Four 
witness stones were set in the form of a square about the stone post 
marking this station. The intersection of the diagonals of this square 
mark the position of the cross on the upper surface of the post.

ASTRONOMICAL PURR. 

The position of the astronomical pier from which the latitude aud 
longitude of the Fort Wingate base was determined is 105 feet 
northeast from ticket office at Wingate, N. Mex. It was marked by a 
limestone post set firmly in the ground. A cross was cut on the upper 
face of the stone to indicate the exact position of the instrument. Lon- 
gitude of the pier was determined by exchange of time signals for 5

TRIANGULATION OF THE POWELL SURVEY. 
METHODS OF WORK. 

The triangolation in this State was developed from two base lines, 
the first being measured at Kanab, TJtah, and the second at Oannison, 
in the same State. These base lines are 150 miles apart, the Gunnison 
line being the more northern and eastern. The Kanab base was first 
located and measured under direction of Prof. A. H. Thompson, in the 
winter of 1871-'72. Trussed wooden bars, supi)orted upon adjustable 
trestles, were used. These bars were oiled and varnished to prevent 
absorption of moisture and tested by comparison with a standard steel 
tape, whose length and coefficient of temperature were known. 

In the fall of 1878 a portion of this base line was remeasured under 
direction of Prof. G. K. Gilbert, with the apparatus used in the measure- 
ment of the Gunnison base line, and the result of this latter measure- 
ment adopted as the length of the Kanab base. The ends of the base 
line were marked by ptone posts of basalt set firmly in the ground, the 
ends of the line being marked by a cut in the upper surface of the 
posts. 

The latitude and longitude of the Kanab base line were determined 
by Prof. A. H. Thompson, in 1872. For longitude, time signals were 
exchanged with the astronomical observatory of theDeseret University 
at Salt Lake City, Mr. E. P. Austin, astronomer of the U. S. Engineers 
Geographical Survey west of the one hundredth meridian, whose serv- 
ices were kindly tendered by Lieut. Geo. M. Wheeler, in charge of that 
organization, conducting the observations and exchanges at that place. 

Latitude was determined by the Talcott method of zenith distances, 
the instrument used being a combined transit and zenith telescope. 
Azimuth was determined by observations on Polaris. 

The final adjusted results of these observations gives, as the position 
of the north end of the Kanab base line, longitude 112© 31' 21"-42 W., 
latitude 36o 67' 46"'54 N. 

The Gunnison base line was measured under the direction of Prof. 
A. H. Thompson, in 1875, the measurement being made by wooden rods 
carried in a trussed wooden case. These rods were oiled and varnished 
to prevent absorption of moisture, and their length was carefully deter- 
mined by comparisons with standard steel rods furnished by the U. S. 
Coast and Geodetic Survey. 

The Gunnison base line was located in the meridian of the astro- 
nomical station at Gunnison, determined in 1872 by the X7. S. engineers'

survey west of the one hundredth meridian, and the longitude of their 
monument adopted as the longitude of the north end of the base line. 
Its latitude was determined from observations of zenith distances by 
Prof. A. H. Thompson, in 1874. The adopted position of the north 
end of the base line is latitude 39° 08' 28"-30 N., longitude llio 49' 
16'''23 W. Both ends of this base are marked by a cross on the upper 
surface of a stone post set firmly in the ground. 

The Gunnison and Kanab bases were connected by triangulation, 
the angles being measured by a theodolite having a 10-inch circle and 
reading by two verniers to 5 seconds. This triangulation was adjusted 
by the method of least squares, and the result, giving for the Gunni- 
son base a length of 32,182.39 feet, and for the Kanab base a length of 
22,619.73 feet, adopted for the computation of the latitudes and longi- 
tudes of the triangulation stations in Utah and northwestern Arizona. 

Signals were erected on all triangulation stations, which were not 
good natural points, before the angles were observed. 

The method adopted for observations of angles was usually by direc- 
tions and on different parts of the circle. These angles were theii 
repeated with the telescope in reversed position. From three to eight 
sets of these observations were made. After making an arbitrary 
station adjustment, all figures were adjusted by the method of least 
squares. 

This system of triangulation covered and gave control points for 
topography over an area of approximately 108,000 square miles. Fol- 
lowiDg is a descriptive list of triangulation stations, giving latitude and. 
longitude of each station, together with azimuth and distances to sucb. 
other stations as were used in the adjustment of figures.

THRBB TREES. 

A high point on the Vermilion Cliff, in Coconino Co., Ariz., three 
miles west from Wolf Spring. It can be approached on horseback only 
from the north. The eminence is sandy and was covered with pine. 
All but three of the trees were felled and from those the lower branches 
were cnt so as to leave tall shafts, with tnfbs of foliage at the top. The 
one nsed as the monument is the most northerly of the three and stands 
on higher ground than the others. The others were merely to aid in 
the identification of the station. To an observer standing at ISTew, 
Brink, Brow, or Brian the monument appears as the middle tree. From 
Pipe and Bmma it appears at the left of the others. From Eanab 
South, Shinornmp, l^aviyo Well, Mansard, Table Cliff, and Pink CM' 
it appears at the right.

A DICTIONARY OF GEOGRAPHIC POSITIONS. 



By Henry Gannett. 



INTRODUCTION. 

For several years the Division of Topography of the United States 
Geological Survey has been engaged in compiling positions determined 
within the United States which are believed to be of sufficient accuracy 
for nse in the preparation of its maps. This compilation has been 
found extremely useful in the office, and it is believed that its useful- 
ness will be greatly extended by ])lacing it before the public. 

This list comprises between 9,000 and 10,000 positions. To publish 
it in extenso, with descriptions of the stations, their latitudes and 
longitudes, the distances and azimuths to neighboring stations, and 
the methods of determination, would extend this bulletin beyond all 
reasonable limits. To avoid making too bulky a volume, it has been 
decided to publish merely the latitudes and longitudes, with abbrevia- 
tions ii^dicating the authority, and references to the publications in 
which other data relating to the positions may be found. 

The arrangement of these positions is the result of much thought, 
and that presented is believed to be the most convenient for the pur- 
poses for which such a compilation is needed. The positions are 
arranged by States and, within States, by " square degrees;" i. e., the 
qnadrilateral limited by consecutive parallels and meridians. The 
States are arranged geographically, beginning with Maine and ending 
with California. Within the States the square degrees commence with 
the northeastemmost and run westward across the State; then they 
begin again with the eastern end of the next tier southward, and so on 
to the southwest comer of the State. 

Within each square degree the positions are arranged alphabetically 
by name. The only exception to this is in tlie case of section corners 
in certain States on the prairies and plains. These section corners 
will be found at the end of their respective square degrees. 

The controlling reason for the selection of this method of arrange- 
ment is that the most common requirement is for all positions within 
a certain area, and since that area may be large, such as the area of 
the State, or small, as, for instance, the neighborhood of a city, such 



j^w^ 



le

a requirement will be met by this arrangement better than by any 
other, except, possibly, an arrangement by counties. An unbroken 
alphabetical arrangement, either by States or by the United States, 
would be practically worthless for the use of surveyors, 

AUTHORITIES. 

The authorities which have contributed in any appreciable degree to 
geodetic determinations of x>ositions in this country are few in namber. 
They are as follows : 

United States Coast and Geodetic Survey. 

United States Geological Survey. 

United States Lake Survey. 

Mississippi Biver Oommission. 

Missouri Biver Commission. 

United States Geological and Geographical Survey of the Territories. 
(Ilayden Survey.) 

United States Geographical and Geological Survey of the Bocky 
Mountain Begion. (Powell Survey.) 

United States (^graphical Surveys West of the One Hondredtk 
Meridian. (Wheeler Survey.) 

New York State Survey. 

By the above nine organizations 99 per cent of all determinatioDB 
have been made. In addition to these a few determinations have been 
made by the United States Engineer Corps, by the New Jersey State 
Survey, by observatories, etc. 

It is in order here to describe the work of each of these nine organ- 
izations, the parts of the country in which their work has been done, 
its extent, and the methods employed both in field and office, and to 
characterize the degree of accuracy which may be expected in their 
determinations. 

TTOTED STATES COAST AXD QKODRTIC 81TRVKY. 

This organization, the oldest in the country, has been engaged in 
geodetic work for more than half a century. Its determinations are 
found all along the coast of the Atlantic, Gulf, and Pacific. Besides 
the work immediately connected with the coast, it has extended its 
triangulation and astronomic determinations of positions far inland in 
many directions and for different purposes. The greater part of Kew 
England, New York, and New Jersey, and much of Pennsylvania, are 
covered by its positions. From the head of Chesapeake Bay it has 
extended a series of quadrilaterals southwestward down the east front 
of the Appalachian Mountains to central Alabama. It has extended a 
belt of triangulation across the United States in the neighborhood of 
the thirty-ninth parallel. In aid of State surveys it has done mach 
triangulation in interior* States, including Wisconsin, Minnesota, Ken- 
tucky, and Tennessee. 



GAifiwrr.l AUTHORITIES. 1 1 

Altogether many thousands of points of primary, secondary, and 
tertiary grades have been determined. Most of those published in the 
reports of this organization, however, rest upon fdndamental data which 
are now discarded. Those published in the rex>orts prior to 1870 rested 
upon chrouometric determinations from Greenwich, or, still worse, upon 
assumed initial positions. All those published prior to 1880 were com- 
puted upon the Besseis spheroid of revolution, which has now been dis- 
carded in favor of Clarke's. Consequently all determinations published 
in the reports of this Survey prior to 1880 have been omitted from this 
compilation, since it is believed that an attempt to use them would only 
lead to error. The i>ositions of the United States Coast and Geodetic 
Survey which are included in this publication are, first, those published 
since 1880, which are found almost entirely in southern New England 
and New York, and, second, a large nnmber scattered widely over 
the country, which have been furnished to the United States Gisologi- 
cal Survey in manuscript by the United States Coast and G^eodetic 
Survey. They are upon Clarke's spheroid of revolution. 

The work of this organization is of the highest order, bearing com- 
parison with the best executed elsewhere in the world. For all purposes 
of mapmaking their determinations may be accepted without question 
of accuracy, however large maybe the scale for which they are needed. 

Astronomic determinations have been made by the best modem 
methods and instruments and by trained observers. The geodetic 
work has been done with a great variety of instruments, but in all 
cases with the best in use at the time. The results have been adjusted 
by least squares, and all determinations in the northeastern part of 
the country rest upon mean astronomical positions. 

The abbreviation used for this organization in the following tables is 
"C. & G. S." The references are to its annual reports, abbreviated to 
"Ropt.,'^ with the last two figures of the date. Other references 
coupled with this authority are the first volume of the final report of 
the New Jersey State Survey, abbreviated to "Final Kept., Vol. 1," 
and Bulletin 122 of the United States Geological Survey, abbreviated 
to "Bull. 122." In cases where no reference is given it is to be under- 
Btood that the data are not published in fall. In such cases they can 
commonly be obtained by correspondence with the Superintendent of 
the United States Coast and Geodetic Survey. 

UNTTRD STATKS OBOLOGICAL SURVEY. 

This organization has been engaged since 1882 in preparing a map 
of the country upon scales ranging from 1 : 250000 to 1 : 62500. For the 
primary control of these maps much triangulation has been executed. 
This is scattered widely over the country, and many thousand determi- 
nations have been made. To specify the localities would be to enumerate 
nearly every State in the Union. The extent of this triangulation and

the results accomplished are ftilly set forth in detail in Bnlletin 122 of 
this organization. 

This triangulation has been execated solely for the control of maps 
npon the above-mentioned scales, and, being simply a means toward a 
certain end, the extreme of accuracy has not been aimed at, but only 
such degree of accuracy as is required for the purpose. All the deter- 
minations are, however, believed to be of ample accuracy for the con- 
trol of maps upon a scale of 1 mile to an inch. 

Astronomic determinations have been made with the best instruments 
and the most approved methods. Triangulation has been done with a 
variety of instruments, from 6-inch theodolites, reading by vernier to 
ten seconds, up to 8-inch theodolites, reading by microscope to two 
seconds. Most of the work "has been subjected to a least-square adjust- 
ment, although this refinement has not always been introduced. 

All determinations are upon Clarke's spheroid. 

In the tables the determination^ of the United States Geological 
Survey are designated by the abbreviation "G. S." The reference 
given for nearly all of them is Bulletin 122 ("Bull. 122'*), and for the 
rest Bulletins 49 and 70. 

UNITED STATES LAKE SURVEY. 

This organization was engaged for many years in a survey of the 
shores of the Great Lakes. The charts were controlled by geodetic work 
of high order, comparable with that of the United States Coast and 
Geodetic Survey. The determinations of positions are upon the shores 
of the Great Lakes and the St. Lawrence Kiver, besides a belt of trian- 
gulation from the foot of Lake Erie to the head of Lake Michigan, and 
from the head of Lake Michigan southward in eastern Illinois nearly 
to the Ohio River. 

The positions determined by this organization are published under 
the following title: "Professional Papers, Corps of Engineers, No. 24, 
Primary Triangulation, United States Lake Survey." 

All positions determined are reduced to the CJarke spheroid. 

In the following tables the Lake Survey is designated by the initials 
"L. S.," and the report above mentioned "Final Kept." 

MISSISSIPPI RIVEB COMMISSION. 

This organization is engaged in a survey of that river, controlling it 
by triangulation, by means of which a large number of points have 
been located along its course, extending from southern Louisiana into 
Illinois. The accuracy of these determinations is amply sufficient for 
the scale of 1 : 20000, the largest scale upon which the maps have been 
issued. These determinations are upon the Clarke spheroid. 

In the tables this organization is represented by the abbreviation 
<<Miss. B. C," and the references are, in the main, to its annual reports, 
which are published as a part of the reports of the Chief of Engineers, 

U. D. A. I ^CSCSCf

MISSOURI RIVEK COMMISSION. 

The work of this organization is very similar to that of the Missis- 
sippi River Commission. Its determinations extend from the month 
of the river to its head, with one or two breaks in continuity. The 
positions are determined with ample accuracy for the control of maps 
upon a scale of 1 mile to 1 inch, and are reduced to the-Olarke 
spheroid. They are indicated by the abbreviation "Mo. R. C.,'' and in 
most cases the references are to the annual reports of the Commission, 
which are published in connection with the reports of the Chief of 
Engineers, U. 8. A. 

UNITKD STATES GEOLOGICAL AND GKOGRAPUICAL SURVEY OV THE TERRITORIES. 

This organization, under the directorship of Dr. F. V. Hayden, sur- 
yeyed between 1873 and 1878 considerable areas in Colorado, Idaho, 
Utah, and Wyoming upon a scale of 4 miles to 1 inch. The triangula- 
tion executeil for the control of this work is believed to be of sufficient 
accnracy for the control of maps upon larger scales, even up to 1 
mile to an inch. The work was done with 8-inch theodolites, reading 
by vernier to ten seconds, and was adjusted by a graphic method. 
The positions were reduced to the Bessels spheroid. In the tables 
they are distinguished by " Hayden " as authority, and referred to the 
annual reports of that organization for the years 1876 and 1877. 

UNITED STATES GEOGRAPHICAL AN0 A]^KOLOOICAL SURVEY OF THE ROCKY MOUNTAIN 

REGION. 

This organization, popularly known as the Powell Survey, mapped 
between 1872 and 1878 the greater part of Utah and northern Arizona. 
The triangulation upon which the work rests was executed with 8-inch 
theodolites, reading by vernier to ten ^seconds, and was adjusted by 
least squares. While used for the control of maps upon a scale of 4 
miles to 1 inch, it is believed to be of sufftcient accuracy for maps of 1 
inch to the mile. The results were reduced to the Clarke spheroid and 
are designated in the tables by *< Powell," and reference is made to 
Bulletin 122 of the United States Geological Survey, in which they 
have been published. 

UNITED STATES GEOGRAPHICAL SURVEYS WEST OF THE ONE HUNDREDTH MERIDIAN. 

These surveys were carried on between the years 1867 and 1878 under 
the directorship of Maj. (then Lieut.) George M. Wheeler, of the Corps 
of Engineers, U. S. A. Prior to 1873 the work was done entirely by 
traverse. In later years it was controlled by triangulation. This was 
executed merely for the control of maps upon a scale of 4 miles to an 
inch. THie instalments used were theodolites, reading by vernier to 
ten seconds^ and the results were adjusted by least squares. They are 
reduced to the Bessels spheroid. In the tables the work of this organi- 
zation is designated by "Wheeler," and reference is made to the annual 
reports of the organization. uigmzeo oy ^j v^ w^ IC 



14 DICTIONABY OP GEOGRAPHIC POSITIONS. [Bnu.123. 

Determinations in the Bocky Mountain region will be found to exhibit 
discrepancies of magnitude. These are due to two causes; one, the 
fact that certain organizations have used the Bessels spheroid and 
the others that of Clarke. The discrepancies due to this cause are, 
however, small in amount, ranging from one to three seconds of lati- 
tude and longitude. The other source of discrepancy is due to station 
errors. The station errors in this region are often large, owing to the 
high relief of the country. In certain cases they are known to be as 
great as a fourth of a mile, and further investigation will doubtless 
develop much larger ones. These can not be adjusted until numerous 
astronomical determinations, scattered widely over the country, have 
been connected by triangulation and mean results obtained to which 
all determinations may be reduced. 

NEW YORK BTA.TE SURVEY. 

This organization, under the directorship of Mr. James T. Oardiner, 
executed a large amount of geodetic work in that State during the 
fourteen years of its existence, 1874 to 1887, inclusive. This work is of 
a high order, amply sufQcient for maps upon almost any scale for which 
they may be required. The results ai e upon the Clarke spheroid. 

The abbreviation used for this authority is " S, S.,'' and the reference 
is to the final report of the Survey.
